I bought this after looking at swatches online, and I expected it to be kind of a dusky pink/tan, and it is VERY brown. Even in the bottle, it looks very pink, but on the nail it's much more of a cocoa-brown. It looks very different depending on the light: brown under soft/yellow lighting, with pink or lavender undertones that show up under white/blue light.
I still really like the colour, but it is totally different from what I expected. It's a classy cocoa brown that goes really well with autumn/winter colour palettes. Good coverage, too - I really only had to use one coat.
